Appendix B Contributed White Papers

The following white papers were prepared and distributed to the workshop participants as provocative authored articles; they were designed to stimulate thought and were not peer reviewed. Authors did not have the opportunity to make revisions after the workshop. The papers (generally two to three pages long) are available on the World Wide Web at http://www4.nas.edu/cger/besr.nsf following hyperlinks to Mapping Science Committee, reports, distributed geolibraries, white papers. This web site will be maintained at least through the end of 2000.
